We take the safety of every member of our College community very seriously including their safety whilst using technology. We have measures in place to protect our students while they are working online in school and we educate them on the importance of staying safe when they are not in school. This section of our website contains information about keeping young people safe when they are using computers, mobile phones and gaming technology.
St John Bosco has been lucky to work with an organisation called Rainbows. Rainbows offer support to young people and families who have had a bereavement. More information from them can be found on their website.
